At its April 2015 meeting, the NFPA Standards Council approved a new Technical Committee on Facilities for Fire Training and Associated Props and directed that a call for members be published.
The Council voted to approve the request of the Technical Committee on Fire Service Training to create a new Technical Committee on Facilities for Fire Training and Associated Props and to transfer the responsibility for NFPA 1402, Guide to Building Fire Service Training Centers, to this new Technical Committee. The Council directed that a call for members interested in serving on the proposed new Technical Committee be published.
